Can I upgrade my Acer Aspire XC-705?

u123935u123935 Posts: 2Member

I have an Acer Aspire XC-705, Intel Core i5-4460 and I want to upgrade from the single 1TB HDD to a system with two RAID 1 drives and an SSD. Are there enough bays/slots to achieve this?

Thanks

    your model has:

    2 SATA 3.0 port

    1 SATA 2.0 port

     

    so this is the first issue you will encounter, not enough ports if you keep the DVD drive connected.

     

    the biggest issue is the lacking of RAID (hardware) support from the BIOS (at least i can't find any reference to this option on the BIOS).

     

    so, not worth in my opinion, since you must rely on a software RAID 1 enviroment.

    I'm not an Acer employee.

    Thanks for your help. The PC is being used by a charity, so I'll get it home and check the innards.
